Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Untouchables'

January 11th, 2013 10:00am EST
The Untouchables
Since this weeks big release "Gangster Squad" is a shallow rip off of one of the greatest crime genre films ever made, why not go right to the source – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  We’re bypassing the subpar imitation and instead heading back to 1987 to covet the original.  It’s a film that worked so well because of an alignment of all the best elements – an amazing cast, stellar script and a director who knew how to add panache.  Never stop fighting till the fighting’s done – it’s..."The Untouchables!"

It’s a time of prohibition in Chicago and gangster Al Capone is cashing ...

'5 Days of War' Is More Like A 2 Hour Guilt Trip.

September 1st, 2011 11:44am EDT
Five Days of War
5 Days of War wants to be Shindler's List so bad it hurts. No really. It hurts. I legitimately got whiplash from throwing my head back in my chair in frustration over just how emotionally manipulative this movie was. From the word go we have Steven Spielberg's classic to thank for the following scenes in 5 Days of War:

Appropriately ethnic music playing over scenes of horrible destruction that occur during a grand family celebration. A heated tête-à-tête between a civilian and a millitary commander. A post credits memorial scene in which tearful families list of names of relatives lost in ...

Andy Garcia's Strict Dating Rules For Daughter

September 27th, 2010 1:00pm EDT
Andy Garcia
Andy Garcia was a strict dad when his children were growing up - his daughter Dominik was too terrified to bring home a boyfriend until she was 23.

The Godfather: Part III star admits he was over-protective of his eldest daughter and wanted her potential suitors to "fear" him. And his actress offspring was so wary of upsetting her caring dad; she hid her romances from him until she was in her twenties.

Garcia tells Britain's Sunday Times Magazine, "Dominik was the first and she suffered more protectiveness from me than the others. She never had a key: she'd have to ring the bell when sh...
